“It goes without saying the current pandemic has had a major impact on the number of sales we would normally see in April…With everyone doing their part to flatten the curve and doing their best to self-isolate, the buying and selling of homes have been greatly reduced.”

Colleen Koehler, President of KWAR

Market recap from Colleen Koehler, President of KWAR:

“It has been a strong sellers’ market for the past few years with buyers competing for a scare number of listings…We have witnessed some buyers expecting homes to sell at greatly reduced amounts, and frankly, that’s simply not the case. Home values have remained stable which we expect will continue.”
